Well, I haven't read the other diner reviews, but I can tell they weren't good from the scores they gave. I may have to disagree. A friend and I had been hoping to get into Burger and Lobster, but the 2 hour wait kind of put us off the idea…so we strolled around Mayfair heading towards Picadilly Circus in quest of a non stuffy restaurant…and we found Rowleys' on Jermyn Street of all places!
Both of us loved it. My friend had fish and chips. I was toying with cod or steak..and following the advice of the friendly waitress I went for the steak, cooked rare, served with as many fries as you can eat basically. Loved it. Steak fabulous, and fries delicious. Apparently the fish and chips were great too.
I normally hate just walking into a restaurant and hoping for the best in London (far too many disappointing/not great restaurants out there), but thankfully it all worked out brilliantly. Had a great catch up over great food. Nothing fancy, but heh, it was done well so we were both happy. Nice buzzy atmosphere too, and old style decor, but in a good way.
Very glad we didn't try out Getti's over the road – half full of people almost twice our age (a little different from the Marylebone branch I think)
